30 Days to a Food Revolution: Experiment with New Flavors

This post is part of a series called “30 Days to a Food Revolution” hosted by Diane Eblin over at The Whole Gang. You can check out my guest post, as well as other posts in the series, by following this link. As you know, I keep a pretty tight food budget, so I limit…

Fire-Roasted Tomato Chicken w/ Capers & Onions

As you may have noticed, I’m a big fan of fire-roasted tomatoes (see previous recipe). They provide this chicken dish with a wonderful depth of flavor, and the capers a nice vinegary bite. At the last minute I also threw in some mustard seed because I really like the texture it adds. One thing to…

Garlicky Lemon Caper Chicken w/ Rosemary & Thyme

This chicken recipe is high up on my favorites list along with my onion smothered chicken and mustard seed & smoked paprika chicken. The rosemary and thyme add a nice earthiness, and the capers add just the right amount of mouth-puckering kick. Garlicky Lemon Caper Chicken w/ Rosemary & Thyme Ingredients: 1 tsp olive oil6…

Onion Smothered Chicken w/ White Wine Braised Baby Bok Choy

Earlier today, one of my Twitter buds tweeted a photo of his caramelized onion steak. It really put me in the mood for something smothered in sweet, slow cooked onions. I decided on chicken since I didn’t have any steak; originally, I planned to use broccolini (baby broccoli) for this recipe but they were out,…

One Pot Wonder: Dutch Oven Chicken & Rice

One-pot dishes are the best. You throw in a whole bunch of ingredients for a complete meal, and you only have to wash one pot (fine, maybe a spoon, knife and cutting board too)! Pretty much any combination of vegetables, grain/legumes and protein can work so feel free to be adventurous! If you don’t have…

Recipe Remix: Smoked Paprika & Mustard Seed Chicken (Dutch Oven Braised)

I have become a huge fan of mustard seeds. Not only do they add great flavor to a dish, but they also lend a nice crunchy texture, but they soften with cooking so they aren’t too hard. For now I’m just using yellow mustard seeds which are pretty mild, but when those are done I…

20 Below: Basil, Ginger & Garlic Stuffed Chicken

Upon request (and somewhat of a challenge) from one of my lovely readers, I’m going to start a series of “20 Below” posts where I will highlight an entire meal for 4 people that costs less than $20 ($5.00 per person). I hope all of you penny pinchers enjoy these posts–and if anyone else has…

Dinner Party Main Dish: Crock Pot Spice-Rubbed Chicken w/ Garlic, Onions & Blood Oranges

I don’t use my crock pot nearly enough, so I decided to make a crock pot chicken for my main dish. I layered the bottom of the crock pot with sliced onions and baby potatoes (red bliss, purple & yukon), stuffed the chicken (under the skin and inside the cavity) with sliced blood oranges, onions…

One-Pot Wonder: Chicken, Tomato & Red Lentil Curry

I’m a big fan of one-pot dishes–something that I can make in a single pot that serves as a meal complete with all of the important food groups: starch, veggies, good fats and protein. I’ve made only a million variations of this dish. My base is sauted onions and garlic, chicken, and canned tomatoes, but…

Recipe 2-fer: Washington’s Green Grocer Produce Box Adventure

I recently signed up to have a vegetable and fruit box delivered to me from local farms through Washington’s Green Grocer. It doesn’t cost too much more than I usually spend on produce in a given week, and it’s local and organic! I got my first box yesterday, and it had so many beautiful fruits…
